Ottawa neuropathic pain sufferers many times find themselves using medications like anticonvulsants and antidepressants and opioids to relieve neuropathic pain since they are the most commonly prescribed ones. (1) Some patients react well. Some experience only minor pain relief. Some can’t take them due to the adverse side-effects. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider understands this annoyance. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider assists many Ottawa neuropathy patients test out other means to pain relief like nutrition (particularly B vitamins) and spinal manipulation to attain the Ottawa neuropathic pain relief they desire.  

WHAT DRUG ALTERNATIVES ARE ACCESSIBLE? WHY ARE THEY NOT USED MORE?

Nutraceuticals – like vitamin supplements – may well be an important part – supportive or primary – in managing pain. One study describes how adequately dosed nutraceuticals may be helpful in managing peripheral neuropathy. Neuropathy may show up as a result of various types of reasons like diabetes, alcoholism, unspecific, or iatrogenic. Plus, these compounds like Vitamin B complex, alpha lipoic acid, L-acetyl carnitine, vitamin E, magnesium, gamma linolenic acid, capsaicin, and Coenzyme Q were tolerated well when used for extended periods of time. Some patients stated that they experienced nausea and vomiting when ALA was taken at 1200 mg or more though. (1,2) Why then if doses can be adjusted are they not recommended or used more? They’re not often covered by insurance, and patients, and doctors may not be familiar with what these options are and what benefits they may offer.  (1) The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider is well aware of such options. The practice of Dr. Tim Schneider helps Ottawa chiropractic patients find their way with these options to boost their benefits for Ottawa pain relief.

ONE GOOD OPTION: B VITAMINS

B vitamins work. How? B vitamins enhance the effectiveness of morphine’s painkilling effect of blocking pain sensation and weaken chronic morphine tolerance. How is this beneficial? The action of morphine is like the action of neuropathic pain, burning pain that tracks a nerve from the spine through an extremity like the leg or arm, coming to rest in the feet, toes, or fingers. B vitamins reportedly lessen neuropathic pain after peripheral nerve injury, sensory neuron inflammation/compression as well as transient spinal cord ischemia (temporary blockage of blood supply to the spinal cord). Including B vitamins in the pain control drug schedule for a patient with neuropathic pain certainly could well be beneficial!
